I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!
Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.
My 5yrs old daughter has been amazingly improved in violin for 6months! Thumbs up!
Experience is good so far. Only one lesson, but already scheduled a lesson for next week.
I'm an adult starter violist (from age 38). I'm now 5 yrs into it, and I play 10+ concerts a year with a local university orchestra, chamber groups, a quartet, and even fusion bands and occasional paid gigs! Leon is a master teacher who understands the ins and outs of learning process, and he makes adjustments on-the-fly, in order for us to meet my goals. My learning needs are definitely non-traditional. With every lesson, I bring in something I'd like to be able to learn (oftentimes unreasonable). But Leon sees it as a challenge and a puzzle, and somehow finds a way for me to learn the piece. And in the process, my knowledge and skills increase. I've also had the privilege of sitting in on advanced/professional players taking violin lessons from Leon. He seamlessly transitions from topics of artistic expression to elemental techniques to musicology in the same discussion relevant to the lesson topic. In any endeavor, it's not easy coming across a master teacher. You will be in good hands, whether you are an adult starter, a child, a beginner, or an advanced player preparing for auditions, or even a professional player looking for a confidential second set of ears. Leon is also very flexible with appointments. I personally have most of my lessons during weekday day times (as I work weeknights), and some weekends. He's also accommodated emergency lessons and instrument repairs on occasions! Attached photo is of me rehearsing on the stage of the Davies Symphony Hall, and also few other adventures that opened up thanks to learning music!
Kathleen makes every aspect of violin enjoyable. She challenged me to be better, and made learning fun and stress free while doing so. There was never a dull lesson!
My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons from Paul. The piano lessons since age 9 for almost 2 years now, and the violin lessons for a few months now to augment the strings music instruction at her school. He was referred by a family in our neighborhood, and he was open to trial lessons before completely signing on. He goes into music appreciation and history along with his teaching. We have also enjoyed a few recitals of his students along the way - there are three of these each year in student homes, and the anticipation of an upcoming recital is good motivation for the student to practice. For one of these recitals, Paul wrote the sheet music for a popular song that my daughter chose, since there wasn't one readily available. So he goes out of his way to customize the teaching. My daughter has progressed well, and enjoys the experience. I definitely recommend Paul.
There is an emphasis of motion freedom and connection to spirit from the beginning.
Prompt response to schedule, easy payment online. First lesson with cello teacher with Bridget was great - she is good with kids. Still early on, so hoping it continues to go well!
Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.

Hi! I can teach guitar, drums, breakdancing, ballroom dancing, etc. I am versatile and have studied music and dancing for 10 years. The first lesson is free!
My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.
I am a versatile violinist, with a background in classical, rock, and folk music. I've studied with classical and folk teachers, and am working on a Masters in Violin Performance at SFSU studying under Zak Grafilo, first violinist of the world-class Alexander Quartet. In addition, I write music for my own band, and work as my own manager, promoter, and visual artist. I have experience recording my own music as well as other musician's work. I also play guitar, piano, sing, and dabble on the banjo. As a teacher, I've coached youth rock bands, and taught private lessons to children and adults for many years. I currently work as one of the top teachers at Music N Beyond and Acme Music, teaching violin, piano, and guitar. I also teach private lessons out of my home.

I am a violin teacher with a music degree from the University in Maine. I have been teaching classical violin for 4 years to students from beginner to advanced/intermediate level on the East Coast and am now available to do so here in the Bay Area. In addition to my classical violin training and teaching experience, I can also teach many different fiddle styles including Celtic, Old Time Appalachian, jazz, swing, contra dance, Quebecois, etc. I am experienced in improvisation and can lend a hand with that as well.

I am teaching piano and violin individually, and I am teaching with passion. I love my work, and I have good results.
